Okay then. Similar theme: why should Qadgop the Mercotan have died horribly?
This is the alien in the novel Kimball Kinnison writes, isn't it? As I recall, he touches neutronium, which is only stable at hundreds of gravities, which should have pulled him in and squashed him to a uniform layer of molecules spread over the surface of the neutronium.

Or am I thinking of something else?
No, you're exactly right, except that "hundreds" may be underselling it. The quipper is all yours!

Nice easy one - In the chronology of the Marvel cinematic universe (NOT the years in which films, TV series, etc. are made, but the period in which they are set), when were the first two appearances of the Time Lord humans know as Stan Lee? Let's say in everything made up to the end of last year to keep it simple...

Clue time - One was in a film, the other was a TV series.

Iron Man - Himself, mistaken for Hugh Hefner by Tony Stark. google is my friend... i knew he was in every movie but wasnt sure if Iron Man was the first one...

Unfortunately no - as I said, I'm looking for the earliest appearance in the chronology of the stories, not in the order the films etc. were made, e.g. if the latest film had show Stan Lee in the Stone Age that might be the first appearance for the purposes of this question.

Hint - not everything made for this canon is set in the present day.

OK, another hint - both are in the first half of the 20th century.

Really? Nobody? OK, let's just go for the first appearance - The second (in the chronology of the Marvel universe) is in the TV series Agent Carter, set in 1946 - Howard Stark has a clandestine meeting with someone on a shoe shine stand, Stan Lee sits down next to him and asks to borrow the sports section of his paper. The first appearance is a few years earlier.

My guess would be the first Avenger? Captain America? I don't even know the name of the movie... :D
And I don't really know anymore, where he was... In a cinema as some kind of worker? :?:

Right film, which I think is close enough - he's an officer present at the medal ceremony in 1943 after Captain America rescues the POWs.

OK, the flipper is yours - try to find a question people can answer, I'm obviously not doing it well in that respect!

It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home.

It's cold outside
There's no kind of atmosphere
I'm all alone, more or less...
